If you are currently invested with another provider in a Stocks & Shares ISA the good news is that you can transfer relatively easily into the Fundsmith Equity Income Fund.
If you do this via a platform such as Fidelity or Hargreaves Lansdown they can do this for you. Simply sign up for an ISA account and follow the simple instructions to get this actioned.
This sort of account provides you with a platform to invest from but would not normally be seen as an investment in its own right. With these kinds of accounts, you will be able to hold money and apply it towards investments such as property, funds, government bonds and corporate bonds as well as shares and stocks.
Generally, they are available as either self-select ISAs that allow you to invest directly into stocks and shares or as collective investment schemes. Many accounts will look after your investments for you, depending on a risk level that you have chosen, whereas others will allow you the freedom to choose yourself. This means anyone can get started in investing.
Stocks & shares ISA are referred to as ‘tax-efficient’ wrappers, as there isn’t any capital gains tax to be paid on gains made on investments held within the wrapper, although dividends do incur 10% income tax at source.
The value of investments can go down in value as well as up, so you could get back less than you invest. It is therefore important that you understand the risks and commitments.
